One Thing Can Elevate a Picture Book From "Meh" to "Great".
And You're About to Learn It.

Think about the picture books that have truly touched you and the children in your life. Now think about what they have in common.

It's "the X factor", the magic ingredient that makes an editor take notice, stops an agent in her tracks and makes a delighted child say "Read it Again!"

What if you had this magic ingredient at your fingertips, ready to sprinkle it throughout your next picture book manuscript?

How different would your writing career be?


The "X factor" that makes a picture book timeless and memorable is emotion.

Picture book authors with the ability to connect on a heart-to-heart level with their readers are a rare breed.

And picture book authors who can actually teach other writers how to connect emotionally with readers?

Well, we only know of one. Meet Pat Zietlow Miller
